Storing unneeded luggage or gear
If you are coming into the region with more gear than you can carry on your bike, or possibly are on an extended vacation, it's commonplace to locate a place to store this extra gear. If you are renting a motorcycle, typically the rental facility will be more than happy to store your luggage or spare gear. This is also commonplace with area hotels. Arrive a day early at your local lodging facility and request they store your extra gear. They'll be happy to comply.
Meals are Not included in the tour cost so please bring some extra money to be able to partake in the restaurants the group will frequent. What is commonplace on the rides is the participants all split the ticket, or simply get separate tickets.
Overnight Tours: Riders are responsible to book their lodging reservations. The cost of lodging is Not included.
SNA provides a list of lodging recommendations for riders to choose from which are located under event details within the ride article.
SNA lodging recommendations are typically Best Western or Holiday Inn-type motels and lodging is typically within walking distance to our dinner destination. Costs typically range from $75-$150 per night depending on the region of California we are in.
If you are arriving the day prior to the tour, refer to the tour description for a recommended lodging facility near the meeting point for the tour. If you are traveling some distance to reach the meeting point, arriving the night prior will ensure you're fresh and ready to ride.
When riding in California, we highly recommend that you dress in layers, to adjust to changes in weather. In addition, Sierra Nevada Adventures Tours strongly recommends you wear motorcycle-specific protective gear while riding a motorcycle. Temperatures during California summers are warm, although the variety of terrain covered in our tours will experience a wide range of temperatures and weather conditions.
Helmets are required by law in California and Nevada. Tour participants are responsible for any traffic violations they might incur during the tour. Alcohol or drug use during the course of the tour is not permitted under any circumstance or while riding the motorcycle. Over-consumption of alcohol during our evening stop-overs is discouraged also, though we want everyone to have a good time!
The weather in California is often rather predictable during the summer months, namely six months straight of sunshine. Our tour dates are chosen to take advantage of our beautiful summer days, but despite our best efforts, we cannot control the weather, so please come prepared for the possibility of spring/ fall rain showers or summer heat as we will be covering a wide range of climates from high mountain elevations to coastal areas. Sierra Nevada Adventures Tours reserves the right to make modifications to the tour at any time for any reason.
Bringing your own bike

Please ensure your motorcycle is ready to ride. Also, consider obtaining some type of roadside service for your motorcycle prior to arriving for your tour. You also might find it convenient to trailer your motorcycle to our starting point. If you need a place to store your vehicle and trailer, we recommend making arrangements with your hotel to leave your truck/trailer.
